Hello babs! I’ve been looking forward to doing this post as it means I get to collaborate again with the lovely Sophie @ PrettyLittleBlog but also I get to finally review the new concealer from Makeup Revolution. I bought this concealer for £4 off the TAM Beauty website but it is also available on Superdrug for the same price. A lot of people have said this is a dupe for Tarte’s Shape Tape but as I don’t own that concealer, I can’t really say if it is or not… I actually bought this concealer before Sophie and I came up with the idea to do a collaboration…
We started with the idea to just each recommend each other a product to try and review but then by no fluke we ended up recommending each other a concealer to try which made the collaboration a bit more interesting. She recommended me to try this one and I recommended her to try the Primark concealer, so be sure to check out her post as well!
Side note: You get 3.4ml/0.11fl oz of product in this and mine is in the shade C1.
The concealer comes in a clear glass bottle that has a rose gold sticker on with the name of the brand and product in black lettering. It has a rose gold screw on lid and there is a white sticker on the bottom of the bottle labelling what the shade is. The doe foot applicator is quite short but fat. I like how you can clearly see the shade of the concealer through the bottle a well.
The first thing I like to check before testing out a product is whether it has a scent or not… I can confirm this does have a scent but it isn’t noticeable unless you get your nose right into the bottle haha! It almost gives me like a paint smell vibe but not a strong or overpowering one… (not sure if it’s just me though) When I first took the doe foot applicator out I realised that it was quite short and fat but I don’t really mind that as I was still able to use it easily. The one thing I will say it to make sure you push it all the way back in the bottle because if you don’t then it will spring up… it won’t necessarily spring out of the bottle but it’s just slightly annoying haha. This concealer is quite thick in formulation but it blended out like a dream under the eyes and it highlighted my face really good which I like my concealers to do personally. I’m not sure if this concealer creases because I couldn’t determine whether it was the creasing or the fact I have a line under my eye which made it look like it was… What I will say is that a little goes a long way for this concealer!
Full coverage? I would say this is pretty full coverage because I only applied a little bit under my eyes and it completed covered the dullness from my bags.
Left eye: No concealer | Right eye: Makeup Revolution concealer
Is it weird that I am not blown away by this concealer… I feel like I should be as everyone else is… I don’t know, I just feel like I need to play around with it some more because on first impressions it was just a bit ‘meh’ for me. I’m not sure if the shade is too highlighting for me so maybe I’ll get the next shade down and see if it I like it more or not. I do think it is a great concealer because the coverage is amazing and so is the formula and I do recommend it like A LOT of other people do but I’m just on the fence about it at the moment… The price is amazing too and there are 18 shades to choose from (25 soon)! Definitely try it out if you haven’t already!
Thanks for reading and be sure to check out Sophie’s part of the collaboration when you leave as she’ll be talking about the Primark concealer which I recommended for her to try 🙂
See you in my next post…
